The one true Helper!

This last week I was on exchanges with another missionary and we were out trying to contact an individual. We knew what street she lived on but we didn’t have her whole address. So off we were on our search to find this person. We tried the first home on top of the hill and it looked like no one was home. We still decided to get out and knock on the door. As we got out of our truck and started walking to the front, two big dogs come bolting from the side of the house. They circled us and we each kept our eye on one of the dogs. We  kept walking but made sure they didn’t come up and bite us. As we took our baby steps to the front door I see out of the corner of my eye 4 more dogs running towards. I thought for sure we were goners. We stopped dead in our tracks and really couldn’t take anymore steps or these dogs would get us. To our surprise 2 more dogs came running out to us and now we are just circled in problems! I thought for sure we were going to pay a visit to the hospital.  With chopping of jaws and angry protective dogs coming towards us we were than relieved by the voice of the owner calling after them. The dogs listened to the power of the owners voice and went away. We were very happy to see that somone was home!

This experience made me reflect on the difficulties we have in life. One day we could have only a couple of problems/challenges/pains/afflictions and than the next day we face 4 more challenges/problems/pains/afflictions and we are being circled by them!  You may than think how in the world am I ever going to get out of this one? Am I ever going to get through this day??

We all face challenges and problems like this on a daily basis and yet it only took one person to remove them. Just as the dog owner had that power over his dogs, so does the Savior, Jesus Christ have power to save us in hard times! Jesus Christ suffered not only for our sins but for everything we face in life. (Alma 7:11-13)

Christ suffered for us to know how to help us. So if He is the only one who knows how to help you personally than wouldn’t you want to be very close to Him all the time???

Thats what He asks of us: “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”  Mattew 11:28. Christ suffered to help you personally in whatever you are facing! He knows how you feel, what your thoughts are, and He knows the pain you go through. So come unto Him and feel the healing power He has to offer!

As we do this we will feel relieved and we will know He is truly there for us! We will feel our lives changed and our faith will grow in Him. Always remember He wants to help us, so please come unto Him! He wants to help! He is the only one who can help us because He knows us personally. May we all strive daily to come unto Him so that we can be helped!

To know how to come unto Christ talk to your local missionaries!

Can you hear me now????…. GOOD!

My new area that i am serving in as a missionary is awesome! We have beautiful open country, great atmosphere, and awesome people. There is just one slight problem. Our cell phone service is horrible! In our own apartment we dont receive any service so we must go outside and try to find that one bar that will allow us to talk to the other person on the other line. This is a challenge sometimes and at this time of the year it gets cold! Some days i get frustrated with it and other days its really easy for me to find that service and talk to the other person on the other line. Can you hear me now???… Good i finally found service!

I feel that there are many of us trying to find our own spiritual service in connecting with God and yet we feel that it is so hard and that sometimes He  cant hear us. Well God’s “service” is not any ordinary cell phone tower. His “service” is universal and even if you are out in the middle of no where you can still call upon him! God is everywhere we go. He is always there for us when we need Him. He just asks that we call upon Him so that He can help us out.  He loves us and He has made it possible for us to call Him whenever we please. He wants us to have that one on one relationship.

Having this “service” or knowing that i can pray to God whenever has blessed my life in so many ways. Yes I go to Him when I need help with something or having a hard time but also I go to Him to express my graditude and thank Him for all that He has done for me! I know that our Heavenly Father is really there and that His “service” is there for everyone! Just talk to Him and you will know He is there!

God is there for us know matter what, He just asks that you turn to Him and He will help you!

The Book of Mormon is true!

I would just like to take time today to share my testimony with you on how the Book of Mormon has impacted my life! This book has saved me and changed me. Its a book that draws you closer to the Savior, Jesus Christ as you read its pages. I have come to know that He is my Savior through the Book of Mormon! He is my best friend. I am so happy that Joseph Smith was called of God to bring this book into my life and to many others so that we can come to know Jesus Christ. I am grateful that the Book of Mormon is another witness of Jesus Christ just as the Bible is. “In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established”(2 Corinthians 13:1).

So here is my second witness that the Book of Mormon is true!

I know that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God and that he just did what God asked him to do. He restored Gods church to the earth and brought more scripture to us so that we may come closer to our Heavenly King! I plead and beg of you to read this book so you may come closer to Christ! It will bring happiness and hope to you! How great is our God!

Please get in contact with your local missionaries to receive a free copy of the Book of Mormon!

Jesus Christ’s Love!

The scriptures teach us a lot of good principles! Thats why we have them to lead us and guide us in a way that can bless our lives and the lives of others. We hear from the Lord in the book of Mattew: “Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.”

We learn from this verse that whoever we may show forth our love to or who we may serve we are doing it unto the Lord because we are all family. I want you to think of the last time someone has done something for your family. Whether it be for your parents, your aunt, your children, or grandchildren. Think of how happy you were because your loved one was helped! Thats what the Lord is telling us. Thats how he feels when someone is helping His loved one out. You have done it unto me.

There are many in need and many who need to feel of His love so lets go forth and spread that love that He shares!

Christmas memories!

Christmas Gifts Background DesktopI can’t believe Christmas is already here. I have been thinking a lot on the past christmas’s that i have had with the family and I remember the christmas’s when we would have the money to be able to give some one else a christmas. This would make my whole christmas. We would go out and shop for these families. We get them a dinner and many gifts. My favorite part was doorbell ditching the christmas that christmas eve and running and hidding so that we could still see their reactions. The reactions is what gave me a lot of happiness and helping them out made me feel good!

I hope this chrismas we seek to help out God’s Children! Everyone needs help whether its giving a gift to someone or whether its going to visit them and making that other person smile. No matter what you do this christmas i hope you can make some one smile!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

The Book of Mormon has changed my life! Its given me a goal to pursue. My whole desire is to return to my Father in heaven who loves me and who wants me to be happy. The Book of Mormon has changed me because i know more about my Savior and redeemer! I know that we come closer and closer to Jesus Christ when we read the Book of Mormon. As we come closer to Him our faith increases and makes us want to do better. How great is our Savior? If you have not read the Book of Mormon, I beg you to do so! If you do so I promise you you will come closer to your Savior, Jesus Christ. You will feel of His love and you will understand who you truly are and that is a child of God! He wants us to come unto Him and to feel this happiness. As we read and pray about the Book of Mormon we will also come to know that the heavens are still open and that God is there.
